Mascagni's L’Amico Fritz in Concert
Baltimore Concert Opera is keeping opera alive and accessible in Baltimore. Join us for their concert performance of Pietro Mascagni's L'Amico Fritz.
Time & Location
Nov 11, 2018, 2:15 PM – 6:00 PM
Engineers Club, 11 W Mt Vernon Pl, Baltimore, MD 21201, USA
About The Event
Whatever your opera exposure or level of composure, join Mixolo and our cast of adventurous solos, with or without a plus-one, and Baltimore Concert Opera at their gilded home at the historic Engineer's Club of Mount Vernon, Baltimore, for their performance of L’Amico Fritz by Pietro Mascagni.
Based on a French comedy by Emile Erckmann and Alexandre Chatrian, Mascagni’s L’Amico Fritz tells the story of the stubborn Fritz, a wealthy landowner who disdains marriage. His friend David, a rabbi and persistent matchmaker, challenges him to a wager, betting that the bachelor will cave to marriage.
Enter Suzel, the enchanting daughter of Fritz’s steward. Will Fritz lose his cool and his bet? Or will he let Suzel marry a rival? Fans of Mascagni’s more famous and more frenetic Cavalleria Rusticana will delight in the idyllic charm of this opera, which was first performed in 1872 to rave reviews.
Absent the lavishness of a fully staged opera, not to mention the price and the commute to DC - or NYC, Baltimore Concert Opera, manages to bring a stellar, all-professional cast of accomplished opera singers to their concert style performances.
